Histoire De La Guerre Mondiale. Volume II. Joffre Et La Guerre D'usure. 1915-1916
By M. Daille
Payot, 1936, 464 pp

The third volume to appear in a series being written by French generals. General Daille's contribution covers the years 1915 and 1916 when the conflict settled into a war of attrition. Joffre naturally occupies a foremost place in this narrative, though the war is followed on all fronts. There are useful sketch maps of crucial engagements.
